I dont want to put best equipment avalaible, but back to normal with low budget. Lot of parts were trash or near trash, especially home made radiators, footpegs and front numberplate was genuine Works of Art! Surprise best was kickstart lever. Here is the bike how i buy it. Photo

Looks like most of the bikes for sale here in upstate NY....did the for sale ad claim a "new top end" ?

By far the best radiators ever built... you should send them to ICW that does radiator repairs and see what they think about fixing them. Lol

I was going to ask "What shock is that?" , what with the fins on the body. Then, I saw the lower clevis.........

No wonder the swing arm has cracked / required welding.

Looks like you are going to have to do quite a lot to make that bike whole,and Safely usable - breaking of the swingarm, is just a hint as to the abuse the poor thing has taken over many years, I'd say.

Luckily, there are quite a few steelie parts available, through the AF 'build' crowd.

PS : If you've KTM rider friends, who've 'blinged' their bikes ( up to 2015 / 2016 depending on the model), the foot pegs will fit the steelie. There's probably thousands of them sitting in garages gathering dust. Just use the KTM springs, and take approximately 1mm off the thicker face , and in it goes. I use the KTM Rally 450 pegs, - lower and much longer. Std KTM pegs are lower too, than original steelie pegs.

Please take this as advice and concern for you (safety wise and financially), and Not criticism of you:

I'd struggle to recall having seen a frame (well, the whole bike) so f**ked up, unless it was snapped in two.

And, as a frame maker and fabricator, I've made and repaired thousands in my six decades.

At nearly every point that the eye comes to, there's something horrific to behold.

To have a bike that's even remotely safe to use (or even to just look at as a garage queen) from this, really looks to require a full rolling chassis replacement - if the frame (and swingarm) has cracked / broken at so many points, and a jury rigged shock has been used, well, I can't imagine many other parts being in usable condition.

I really hope you got the bike for next to nothing, and the engine is , somehow, a far 'healthier' thing than the rest of the bike.

It's a shame you're not in the USA - there, with all the AFs done, you'd have a good chance of getting a healthy, usable Steelie rolling chassis for bugger all. Though maybe you'll find one - or parts - in your neck of the woods.

Good luck with bringing life back to this utterly abused bike. If you succeed, you'll be a Champion.

Guy is from Czech Republic. There are no hurricanes or tornadoes there, but the Czech people are very creative and just fix things their own way. If they don't have the part, they will make it at home, which is kind of cool in certain ways. I am sure there are not many CR500 for sale over there like there is here on Craigslist. Poor guy probably doesn't have a choice.

All over the world creative people will find, but this bike is coming from some former states of Soviet union.

Motor inside was not too bad, as i expected. For sure piston, connecting rod need replace and couple of wheels in gearbox, all bearings as well. Luckily crank is good. Cases were damaged, but is repairable.
